I plasti dipped my tow hooks red when I had the stock bumper on. You could paint them also. I did the dip in case I ever wanted to put the hooks back to normal.

If anyone was ever wondering what a 2-dr Sahara Anvil Softtop looked like - here is mine. I was searching through this thread when I ordered mine, but couldn't find one. Unpopular combination I guess. Haha.

Sorry; I've taken it out a few times, but keep forgetting to get pictures. I'm going out next weekend and intend on getting some action pictures. I'll post after that.

Thanks again!

That sucks, glad you are ok man.

I would advise renting or buying a large (large!) rivet gun rather than using the provided tool... it would save lots of time.

On my 10A, the rear bumper did not need to be removed or loosened, just took of the plastic parts that mate with the factory rear fenders (I never put them back on). The rock rails did need to come off... not hard but unexpected at the time and again, better with a helping hand.

Installation effort aside, the quality and finish of the fenders is really high (I had them powder coated at MC). They were packed very well and communications was good. I'm super happy with the engineering and fit. I would do it again.

Best thing to do is download the instructions, watch the instruction videos then if you have questions, give them a call. They can walk you through any head scratchers and give you tips.

Bottom line, I think they are high quality product from a really good company.

Yes the hit the air dam and the bumper and fenders at full flex. I plan to trim the fenders and replace or stubby the front bumper. Love the look of the 315's on the OE wheels just not too crazy about the spacers.....
